The Department of Home Affairs has lifted the section 48 bar for applicants who are eligible for the Subclass 190 (Skilled Nominated Visa), 491 (Skilled Work Regional Visa) and 494 (Employer Sponsored Regional Visa). This means that if you have had a visa refused or cancelled whilst you were in Australia, and you currently do not hold a substantive visa, you may be eligible to apply for a 190, 491 or 494 visa. You can do this without having to leave Australia.
Each of the above work visas provide permanent residency or a pathway to permanent residency.
This is subject to eligibility criteria and you must be currently holding a Bridging Visa A, Bridging Visa B or Bridging Visa C.
